Ariana is an experience you should have. Exceptional service.
Awesome tasting menu.
Ron was our server and he was fantastic. He was sincere and accommodating
The ambiance was wonderful. Our wait person, Ben, was very attentive without hovering. The food was fantastic. We will be back.
excellent food including the bread and ending with dessert. Expensive but well worth the treat once in awhile. My new favorite place!
Ariana was amazing as always!!
Our favorite restaurant!!
Ron was amazing. We did the chef‘s tasting course and everything was perfect. Thank you for everything!
The chef tasting is always the most incredible experience! The food is extraordinary, the service is impeccable and the atmosphere is Devine. I highly recommend eating at this restaurant whenever possible. You will never ever be disappointed!
We love Ariana! The food is delicious and interesting. The menu changes periodically, so that keeps things exciting. We also love the atmosphere, small, cozy, intimate . On top of that our waiter, whose name we keep forgetting to ask, is very professional. He knows the business, how to interact with patrons and have a good time. He is efficient and fun and does not hurry you through the meal. He is the person we ask for and refer to him as "the old guy". Thanks Ariana!
The scallops would have been better if cooked a little longer. They were undercooked.
Timing on service was perfect and the Capprico was delicious.
Our favorite place in Bend. We're from Chicago and always try to reserve an evening at Ariana when we are in town. The venue is charming. The cuisine flavor and presentation lives up to some of the best restaurants in Chicago, and the service is impeccable.
Amazing all the way around!! Had a fabulous dinner with amazing family and friends for my 40th birthday! Always a treat!
Fabulous food complemented by great service. Just the best.
Some of our dishes were excellent, some fair.
Tables are packed in.
We always look forward to dinners at Ariana. The anbiance is very nice; the food is wonderful; service is perfect! We always feel welcome and are treated like we are special guests.
Great service, interesting menus, very cozy but noisy. Great for wonderful food and service but not for a quiet date evening.
Amazing food, impeccable service, relaxed atmosphere but not too casual. But the food! I had the scallops on crab risotto and radicchio salad , she had the fennel snapper and beet salad. Appetizers were oysters on the half shell and carpaccio. Not enough space to go into the details, but nothing disappointed. Flavors were well balanced, everything was cooked or prepared to perfection.
Easily the best restaurant in Bend. Will be going back!
Absolutely get the chef’s tasting menu (5 course meal). You won’t regret it. My wife and I will remember the quality of food and service and years to come. It was kind of a one time deal as we don’t live close to Bend.
Ariana is not to be missed if you want some of the most delicious and great variety to choose from. The Chef is creative and every dish is a delight to taste and savor. We shared many appetizers and they were fabulous, try the cheese and bone marrow for sure. The lobster tail was amazing; tender and great flavors.
Appetizers were excellent but made for individuals not a group of 5. Our bday girl enjoyed her steak the scallops and risotto were excellent. A bit over priced
The meal and service was outstanding. New favorite. Too expensive for very often but was amazing!!
Ariana is our "go to" restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. The menu items are always delicious and the service impeccable.
Everything just fantastic. Chefs have it all going on! Excellent service. Truly a neighborhood gem. Make your res well in advance!
the tasting menu was amazing! I’m not sure how it was possible but each course got better!
Fabulous evening! Our waiter Ron was amazing, so attentive, fun, and helpful. It was my husbands birthday and we were a party of 7. Ron kept the evening going so smoothly. We ended up ordering the entire appetizer menu - and then went light on the entrees. The cocktails, apps and entrees were all amazing but Ron made the evening. We will definitely be back. Perfect special occasion evening!
Amazing food and wine pairing as always
The cauliflower soup is what brought me here years ago
She does such an amazing with gluten free options
We have been wanting to try Ariana for a couple of years, since seeing it on a "top ten restaurants in Oregon list". We are from Salem and met up with our daughter from Boise for her 29th birthday. It was definitely worth both the wait and the distance. The cocktails and tasting menu were outstanding. Ariana rivals most Portland top rated restaurants.
This place never ever disappoints. Everything was perfect.
We moved to Bend 8 months ago and have been trying the many restaurants in town.
this was our first time at Ariana and it surpassed all our expectations; from the wine list to the menu choices, service and atmosphere. We definitely will be back again! Probably my favorite so far!
We love Ariana; this was our fifth time there in the last nine months. Somewhat sadly, Ariana was having an off night last Saturday. We went with foodie friends from out of town, looking to show off a Bend classic. The four of us had the tasting menu with wine pairings.
As usual, the menu was well conceived with fresh ingredients and lots of variety. Unfortunately, the three hot middle courses (Bisque with diver scallop, Petrale Sole, and Tenderloin) were all way over-salted. We have never had that experience at Ariana and were frankly surprised.
We also thought the wine pairing pours were abnormally small. We have done the tasting menu/pairings at least twice previously and our recollection was that the pours were ample if not generous. This night they were on the order of two ounces and the Pinot Noir with the Petrale perhaps less. The wines themselves were fine and well paired, but for $35/person, I expect more than 2-3 sips.
Finally, it was incredibly warm inside the restaurant, to the point of discomfort.
We will go back, but this night was a bit of a disappointment with our friends.
5-course tasting menu was divine! First course was raw oysters which I am not a fan of so they kindly offered a cooked option which was wonderful. Service was superb. Our server was very neatly attired, polite, attentive but not pushy. Provided good descriptions of each course. The dessert was personalized for our anniversary which was very thoughtful. Portions were spot on - we left full and satisfied but not stuffed. Highly recommend this “Bend Gem”!
The most amazing meal in memory. The wine pairings were spot on. Thank you!
Wonderful food and atmosphere. The bar area caused the noise level to be higher than desired.
The dinner was excellent and the presentation of the food beautiful. Enjoyed everything!! And the wine & beer. Lastly, our server (a female, I think Carol?), was spot on. She did not hurry us, but her timing was impeccable with checking in on us.
excellent meal , good selection of appetizers and entrees and exceptional service.
We only get to go to Ariana once or twice a year, even though we are locals, so it is always special. Ariana always seems to live up to our high expectations as it is consistently excellent. The food, the service and the ambiance are always top notch! Our favorite in Bend.
Another outstanding evening of fine dining in a wonderful atmosphere. The service and food was excellent!! We have come to frequent Ariana for all special occassions or have friends visiting. We have favorites which include the scallops, filet, and any other seafood specials.
Amazing. Amazing. Amazing.
We had a great meal on this visit. We are partial year residents in Sun River and we make it a point to come in at least once during every stay. Food and service was outstanding with the exception of one meal. The gentleman in couple that joined us ordered the lobster an didn't enjoy it. He did not send it back as he thought maybe the way it was prepared was correct for this chef and didn't want to ruffle any feathers. He felt it was under cooked but admitted that he had not had lobster very often and just felt like it was his taste more than an improper presentation. Since he said very little at the table to us I was unable to encourage him to send it back to see if it could be cooked more or otherwise fixed. Being in the industry we understand that if you don't say something then there is no opportunity for the restaurant to fix it which he understood when we talked the next day. Everything else was perfect and we enjoyed the food, wine and service as we always do. Congratulations on such a wonderful restaurant and we look forward to our next visit!
